Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered

Q. Can police charge the passenger of a vehicle for drugs found in this situation?/Is this sufficient for a wiretap warrant
A: Yes you could have been arrested. If an officer is in a place where he has a legal right to be ("plain view" test) and he observed a controlled substance and you he could have arrested you. Although proximity (being in the same place) is not enough to convict you of possession (knowledge plus control) it certainly is enough for an arrest.
Q. I’m in federal jail already been sentenced I also have to do state time can I be transferred to state and return to FED
A: No. The Federal Bureau of Prisons will not release you to serve a State sentence until you have completed your federal sentence. Important! State's differ but contact your trial attorney in State Court and ask him to have the State serve you with a State warrant: this way you are certain to be earning time toward your State sentence while in Federal custody. In most situations this is normal procedure and you will get credit for your State sentence. But since you asked a good question it is useful for you to get confirmation that time served is time earned in State court.
Q. My freind was arrested charged with drunk driving. He was not driving his car was broke down in the bar parking lot he c
A: Go to trial. At trial the prosecutor has to prove that the automobile was a functioning automobile. If in fact it was not capable of being operated on the street then you can argue to the jury that the State has failed to meet its burden of proof. At the conclusion of the State's case your attorney can argue a Motion for Judgement of Acquittal if he can convince the judge of the proof failure by the State. Although you wrote in your question that the automobile was not working, it is a question of fact that has to be argued at trial.
